A goal-getting program for women creatives who want to start their own passion projects & go after their BIG dreams
If you’ve been trying (maybe for years!) to:
Start/build your own blog
Publish your own book
Launch your portfolio
Start a freelancing side-business or online shop
Teach & earn from workshops
Learn Photoshop or Illustrator or video editing
Improve your lettering/painting/photography skills
and all these other creative passion projects...
...that you can't seem to find the time or motivation for.
It can get pretty discouraging to see other people who just seem to be so motivated and flawlessly succeeding at pursuing their passion, building an audience online, and knocking out life goal after life goal after life goal.
"WHAT'S THEIR SECRET?!?!?"
you silently and frustratedly think, as you Google article after article, devour how-to's and listicles and lifehacks and productivity tips... You try to implement some of them -- but none of it seems to work or stick!
What are you doing wrong?
Why does it work for others...
but not for you?
AND SO YOU START THINKING...
This course is for you if you want to:
But you REALLY struggle with:
'Just do it! Don't be afraid to fail!' -- how many times have you heard this advice? Instead of just vaguely telling you to "make your ideas happen," this class will SHOW you exactly how. There will be brainstorming techniques (internal, and external), and fun challenges.
The methods I teach are life skills that you can apply to ALL aspects of your life: It can help you become a self-starter and a leader in your work, your organization, your family, or your group of friends!
My teaching style is clear, simple, practical, and very, very actionable. I get to the meat of the lesson without unnecessary noise & pomp -- because I know that you will learn best by DOING. Less info-overwhelm, more action!
Most of the time, we need to see a learning concept in real life, in action, in different situations -- for us to fully understand how it works. I learn that way, too. So when I teach, I include A LOT of examples & case studies (and video walkthroughs!).
When I signed up for Braver Goals, my goal was to earn a minimum of Php15,000 in my side-business. I ended up earning Php29,970 in the final month! This is an achievement in itself, because I've never, in the last 5 years of running this biz, earned this much in just 1 month!
Another Braver Goals win for me is: After eight loooooooong years of building up the courage to begin again, I've finally launched my blog! When I finally finally finished everything last night and launched it first thing this morning, I actually cried. Even I couldn't believe I finally finished it.
I can't begin to tell you how thankful I am for joining Braver Goals last year. You have really helped me to be where I am right now. :) My overall attitude in conquering and making my plans happen have improved a lot. My organization/management and goal-setting skills have improved immensely as well.
I was able to do in 3 months, what I've been dreaming of and pushing back for the last 4 years.

When I started the Braver Goals course, I was finishing my thesis for my senior year in university. Since then, I was able to save and earn PHP 7,000+ from transcription and writing jobs, and create and share 2 song covers on Facebook! (Among many other wins!)
I think that a number of the changes that I saw in myself this year was sparked by being part of the Braver Goals community and having that accountability to action and putting my ideas out there (and not just letting them rot inside).
The best way I can describe my Braver Goals transformation is - I went from "I can't" to "why not". I didn't realize how afraid I was or of how many limiting beliefs I had about what I could and could not do. I was basically talking myself out of the game even before I started playing (which is completely ridiculous looking back now).
I just want to say thank you so much for your mentorship & for Braver Goals, I think it really put me on a path where I actually act on my ideas and dreams. I'm so grateful.

You will get access to all 6 modules of the #90BraverDays challenge inside the e-course, but you will have to DIY your journey.
An important caveat: If you're no longer a student, and you're earning money on your own, I seriously think you should start investing your earnings in yourself and your growth and go for the Bootcamp (below) ;)
The payoffs and results will be much, much better -- a better career, which can result to higher income, or more drive to pursue a side-hustle, which can also result to higher income.
"After the Braver Goals course, not only did I get incredible changes in mindset (I feel more empowered and inspired) - I experienced tangible transformations as well.
I now have more clarity & focus in the direction I want to steer my creative career towards. Instead of just dreaming up plans in my head, I've actually done concrete steps like holding workshops, doing designs for my next collection, finally setting up my Facebook page.
I still have a lot of things on my to do list to achieve my goals but at least now, there’s clarity of goals and intention, and there’s a detailed action plan... ALL THIS, because of our exercises and discussions with Arriane! The thought of being accountable to another person really helped me commit & follow through."

Before #90Braverdays, I was so insecure and really wondered if people will even pay me for my work. Then I just started telling people that I am selling & offering design services and people responded.
From just an idea, I’ve started earning from my art, I’ve grown my Instagram following, and started putting myself out there a lot more.
So thankful for all the guidance, feedback & support from Arriane & the rest of the awesome girls from the course! Braver Goals was suuuuuch a great investment for my personal growth. The price is so worth it!

I've had this idea for a book for the longest time ever. When I joined Braver Goals, I decided to finally start working on this big dream of mine.
My Braver Goal for 90 days was to write 51,300 words -- so that meant writing 500 words a day.
By following the Braver Goals system... I got to 60,000 words in just 90 days! I accomplished that probably 10x faster than if I had opted out of this #90BraverDays challenge.
In the course of this challenge, I learned to just show up even when it was hard, when I was uninspired, or just plain unmotivated. I have the tools and the right mindset now. I almost feel like I can do anything!
- MICA GONZALEZ,
student leader and author
In the beginning of the course, I felt almost out of place. I felt like I had no passions! I really had no idea what I enjoyed doing. I was interested in lots of little stuff, but nothing that felt anywhere near raring to go.
Braver Goals gave me that mindset shift - that "figuring things out" comes after trying, and not the other way around -- it got me to this passion project that I’d gladly wake up early in the morning for!
Now, I have my very own self-published book!

It's tailored just for you. I'm a creative woman entrepreneur who struggled with the exact same things, and I've worked with over 100+ women who ALSO are going through the same challenges. This was built specifically for you.
Also, my content is world-class because I am first & foremost, a teacher at heart. I am very good at developing systems, and explaining them in very understandable terms.
I also use very relatable stories & examples. Believe me, I know how useful it is to see real-life examples. That’s how we learn. That's why the missions are not only filled with action-oriented advice, but are stuffed with TONS of examples.
Goal-setting systems and strategies are not something that we are taught in school -- I think most people assume you're either born with it or not:
"I guess she's just really driven."
"I think she's just innately organized."
"She's just really business-minded... I'm not really the business type."
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
I want to be able to empower more creative women to stop doubting themselves and just MAKE THEIR IDEAS HAPPEN -- because there are tools and workarounds to the many fears that we usually have.
I want to be able to empower more creative women with the skills and tools and systems I've personally used that has enabled me to DESIGN A LIFE where I have control over my growth. A life of growth that is creative, inspiring, meaningful, and fulfilling.
That's not something you're born with. It can be learned. And it MUST be practiced. It's a muscle that's got to be flexed, strengthened, exercised.
If you're still not sure how this class could help you, here is one success story + a few testimonials from some students in class:
When Roxanne wrote to me, she had just started her job as a service crew member in McDonald's. After a few months of wallowing in the house, he was determined to get out into the world, meet new people, and start being more proactive about her future.
She already had a blog, she knew what she loved doing (making stamps + post-crossing), but she just needed a push to get those ideas OUT INTO THE WORLD.
1) launch her portfolio/website
2) save up for a DSLR camera (in 3 weeks!)
3) launch her Etsy shop for handcarved stamps
Check out some highlights of her story below.
Look. I'm sure you've spent more money on (expensive!) planners, notebooks, cute pens, stickers, Post-Its.
All these are tools, but the best and prettiest tools are USELESS if you don't have the right foundations. Invest in the most important things first.
Also, remember: Experience is a much, much more valuable investment over worldly material things. When was the last time you invested in your own personal growth & learning?
Besides, I'm really big on loyalty. I reward my community members who take the leap and join me very early on.
They're not just customers, they're kinda the people who are keeping me company as I also figure my journey out. And so I treat them as such: teammates.
That said, I'm never going to shortchange my teammates. My guarantee to them is that the price will never go lower than what they bought it at.
At this price, you get unlimited access to the content for 1 whole year. You get to rewatch the videos, re-listen to the audio files, reread the texts, re-answer the worksheets.
And! If I release any bonus content in the coming months or years -- YOU WILL GET THEM.
As I continue to improve your course, you have no choice but to come along the ride with me and get all my new, and super-valuable stuff. ;) At no additional cost!
Here's a testimonial from Tiffany, who explained to me why she decided to invest in my course (she dropped a harsh-but-true truth bomb at the end):
Be honest with yourself. Will you ever REALLY stop being busy?
After this month, there will be NEW things to be busy about, more deadlines, more e-mails, more work. There is never a time when you're not busy.
So it's your responsibility to MAKE TIME and MAKE SPACE for your own learning and growth, because who else will?! Your parents? Your boss? Your friends?
It's your growth. It's your life.
All I ask is 30 minutes of your time everyday. That's it. The course is very easy to follow, I've simplified everything, and made sure that you can complete and implement it really quickly.
You can re-watch the videos anytime you want, any month or any day of the year.
One of the best advantages of an online course vs. a one-time workshop? A one-time workshop means you only have access to the lessons for a few hours in one afternoon. After that, you're on your own, relying on your memory.
But with an online class, the lessons are available to you, any time.
This is a sample from one of my old workshops, so you can see what it looks like inside the members-only site.
